India Pale Ale (6.5% ABV): Rubicon’s flagship ale that is made adding Cascade, Columbus and Chinook hops throughout the brewing process and has won Gold Medals at the 1989 and 1990 GABF’s. The beer pours a clear gold color with an off-white foam head. IPA has a citrus and hops floral smell. The beer is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. IPA has a light toasted malt flavor with some earthy hay background and a very nice medium hops bitterness that is persistent in the finish. This is a very good beer that I could drink regularly.
